Lyraea Posted April 19, 2022 Share Posted April 19, 2022 (edited) The Kerbals may not show it, but they get lonely pretty easily. Of course, they have no issue sitting in a cramped 1-seat command pod for centuries at a time (Snacks and radiation permitting,) but the idea of being nothing but a bunch of frogs running around on a mote of dust in a sunbeam in a giant, empty room full of sunbeams and motes of dust in a building full of rooms that goes out in all directions as far as their tiny froggy brains can comprehend and probably much past that, is immensely disturbing to them. It makes them feel very, very small. However, if there's one thing Kerbals have learned since they swam out of the Kraken's maw and plopped into the primordial muck, it's that the building won't seem so tall when you're standing on top of it. So, just as they've conquered all the things that scared them in the past, the Kerbals are going to conquer that big building to make it seem a lot less small. (If they could ever research a way to climb the ladder without getting turned over every which way, that is. Attempt no traversal of the ladder. Untold horrors await there...) But their ladder-traversing days are far ahead of them still, so they'll work up to it by taking baby steps first. Namely, by hopping to another sunbeam. The nearest one, in fact - Proksimus Kiribani, Kerbol's neighboring star. To this end, they've established a crack-team of their best and brightest Kerbonauts, who have called themselves... The Lyra Aerospace Exploration Agency!!! Hmm. Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, does it? I knew we shouldn't have let the nerds name their own club! Oh, well; we'll just call it the LyrAEA for short. Playthrough's full modlist and description under the spoiler Spoiler Lyraea - Career to Nova Kiribani is an Easy(-ish) mode, modded career save with the end goal of colonizing at least one planet in the Nova Kiribani star system from Galaxies Unbound. Additional challenge is added by using the Nova Kiribani star system in conjunction with Sigma Dimensions to scale up the stock (+OPM) system up by 2.5x planet size and 3x orbit size. It is fairly heavily modded, with 106 addons (as of this original post.) As such, the full modlist is rather long, and will be below the second spoiler. Changes may happen to the modlist later, and since this is not rocket science, I will not guarantee that this modlist will always (or ever) be up to date.

You will probably do a much better job. However, if you don't, I might be able to use your help! There should be a poll at the top of the post - you most likely saw it on your way down - which asks about the next step Lyraea space agency should take in their exploration of the wild blue yonder. Feel free to vote - the winning answer will be the next step in the career (Funds and time permitting!) More updates coming Soon™. Fly safe! And here we are! A brand new, baby KSC. How cute! Well, we'd better get to work right away fulfilling contracts and collecting Science. This one looks fine. Thank you Gene, very cool! And we'll take "Reach for the Stars" too, while we're at it. Now, how to fulfill them... Edited April 21, 2022 by Lyraea Updated modlist (again) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
